Highwaymen’s Tales

…with Caroline Baldock

Wednesday 31st July, 2pm @ Church House, High Street, Wimborne

Touched by the hardships, poverty and misfortune they faced, Caroline Baldock tells the stories of many of our best-loved highwaymen.

These ‘fiends’ were not just robbers, they were also gentlemen whose lives were changed by civil war, circumstance and luck. The throw of the dice in the 17th and 18th century could make you rich and make you poor, you could find yourself in debtors prison, hanging from a gibbet or dancing with aristocrats. ‘One for the Road’ and ‘Hangers on,’ are sayings from that time.

Come and listen to the tales of these erstwhile adventurers.
